Newtown Community Primary School
'Newtown Primary School is a Community Primary School and we take the "Community" aspect of our title very seriously. Our children, their families and extended families are at the heart of everything we do.'

Potential Strike Action


As you may be aware from the National Media, school support staff trade unions (Unison, GMB and Unite) are planning to take industrial action on 14th October 2014.


I am therefore writing to alert you to the possibility of disruption to classes on this day.  It is not yet clear whether this could affect some classes in school or lead to the school closing.  I am currently assessing the situation, particularly with regards to Health & Safety issues, and will write to you again as soon as the position is clear.
